Hop Cottage is in a very quiet location but it is just a short walk to Goodnestone Park Gardens and the Village Pub. There are countryside walks from the doorstep. Lots of local attractions including seaside towns and wildlife centres and historic sites like Canterbury and Dover Castle are just a short drive away. There is a Farm shop good for BBQ supplies. Hop Cottage is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travellers, families (with kids), and furry friends (pets).
Hop Cottage was built in about 1680. It has a bread oven and what looks like a staircase in a cupboard and lots of other quirky features like a fireplace with seating and a place to put your beer. It also has modern features to make your stay more comfortable such as central heating, an electric shower and a large 4 oven range cooker in the farmhouse kitchen. There is a games room with a pool table, dolls house and restored Victorian piano. The car parking area is spacious enough to park several cars.
Guests have sole access to the Cottage, the Games room in the barn and two private Cottage gardens to the front and rear with seating and BBQ facilities. Access to the cottage is via a Key box, just leave the keys in the Key box when you leave or post them through the letter box.
Your hosts will be nearby and available to help if needed, just call or text. We are happy to chat if you want more local information or you can have no interaction at all if you prefer a totally private escape.
If you are interested in magic or art your hosts are a keen artist and a member of The Magic Circle (which is a nationally known magicians' society).
Check in is any time after 4.30 p.m. And check out is any time before 11.30 a.m.
I'm an artist and have regular shows and also sell my work online and I love wild-life gardening and looking after my old cottage. My husband is a magician and a member of the magic circle. He performs regularly in a local seaside magic-themed bar. We love being Airbnb hosts, you get to meet so many interesting people and we get a lot of positive feedback!
